Mexico coach Miguel Herrera issues a sex ban on his players for the duration of the World Cup in Brazil.

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera has revealed that his players will not be allowed to have sex during the World Cup in Brazil.

The 46-year-old has insisted that he wants complete focus from his players when the tournament gets underway next month.

"If a player can not endure a month or 20 days without having intercourse, then you are not prepared to be a professional," Herrera told Reforma. "Let's play a World Cup, we're not going to a party."

Mexico will face Brazil, Croatia and Cameroon in the group phase.
